Have been here twice. Can't wait to go back!
I would definitely recommend making a reservation and arriving a little early especially if you are going on a weekend night. I have been on a slower night and a Saturday night. Saturday was quite packed so you need to get there early even with a reservation.
I did not eat dinner either time but there was a decent selection on the menu and a larger party close to us ordered a lot and it looked good. There is a great drink menu with a full bar in addition to what is on the menu.
The music was AMAZING! The first time I went was a quiet night and there was a different band. They were all amazing and the lead female singer was a gross between Adelle and Janis Joplin. We only planned on staying for a set or two and stayed the full four hours. We just could not leave and miss a minute. The second time was the house band and there were about 5 different people to step up to the mic. They took recommendations and knew almost everything. So exciting. I would absolutely recommend Cafe Wha? to anyone!
There is a small reservation fee with reasonable food and drink prices. Especially since you are in Manhattan. I know there are so many options but Cafe Wha? is so worth the trip.
